What is an 'accurate' percentage of men who are bi or homosexual (out of the general world population)?

    Need answers so that I don't makeup the probability of a guy being interested in men when they are not...

    Likely to be much higher
    Lots of men (and women) still in denial, and would not self-report as LGBT when answering a survey
    Also, lots of closeted people decline to participate

    If I had to guess, I'd say 6-7%

    the funny thing is that this is actually knowable now with the internet. facebook and google, and probably walmart at least for the american side, could get a highly accurate count with their databases.

    The ones in denial and the ones in the closet (married?) don't count as they're not part of the "fish in the sea", the actual gays/lesbians who are out must be 3-4% in the western, in the Middle East/Africa around 0.1%.

    Total bullshit numbers but you get the idea.
